I was standing along the muddy edge of the lake photographing a group of tiny frogs when this phoebe flew into view. I shifted my position on the log and kept snapping away. Shooting with a prime lens and with no time to back up, the tail of the bird is a little close to the frame. Happily the shots were nice and sharp so I’m not too bothered by the less than perfect crop. I made a few tonal adjustments in Lightroom to brighten up the photos.
